    Were the tires balanced properly? Does you steering wheel or passenger seat shake?

    i plan on having one done when i finally get around to putting on new tires. i figure after 52,000 miles it can't hurt.

    I always have the alignment checked with new tires. That way you don't end up trashing them. Most shops check for free, but if they adjust anything, it will cost ya.
